I’m gonna buy a whole box of chalk!
If someone wants to park like that in the far corner of the lot, I will not mess with them. Parking like that in a prime area, however, should be punishable by sand paper.
Sand paper?? kind of harsh, I’m sure you wouldn’t want someone to take sand paper to your car, so why would you even suggest such a thing for someone else??
Noun:Exaggerated statements or claims not meant to be taken literally.
Synonyms:exaggeration – hyperbola – overstatement
How about a boogie applied to the driver’s side door handle?
Vaseline might be more effective that boogies.
Because we wouldn’t be an ass and park like that!!!
It’s not necessary to damage anything. An old lipstick will leave a short, pithy message in large, bold letters on the windscreen. It’s difficult to wipe off, and will revisit the driver whenever it rains for weeks afterwards.
Sandpaper? Really? So I drive my hotrod to work on a Friday – Crosspark in the South 40 as to reduce the amount of doordings from people in Geo Metros..And you’re suggesting I should get sandpapered? Wow… I wish I could find you. Right Now….Actually I can. Wanna talk about this over coffee?
If a person is so afraid to have someone park next to them out of fear of a ding that they take up 2 spaces and make other park farther, yeah they deserve the treatment for being inconsiderate and vain.
inconsiderate and vain? Yeah right. I care about my truck, it’s not new, ain’t pretty, but I HATE door dings. Yep, I park in the back, take up 2 spaces, and get some exercise instead of driving up and down the rows looking for a closer spot where someone who doesn’t care will ding up my car.

And It’s all up to Mr. Doug Hamilton armed with chalk and #80 grit to decide if I”m in a “prime” parking spot or not. Wow.. Wanna talk about this over coffee?
Please refer to Chris Morgan’s comment. That is all.
‘Crosspark’? I didn’t even know there was a single word for it. I thought it was just ‘parking like an a-hole’. Parking on the street could solve this ‘door-ding’ problem you worry about. If it’s ok for you to park like that, then it should be ok for me to park like that right next to your car, so that wouldn’t solve your ‘door-ding’ problem , either. So the only thing protecting you from those door-dings when you park that way is that everyone else agrees that only an a-hole would take two spots when there is not alot of parking available, so they stay in the lines. I also assume/hope the earlier poster was kidding about the sandpaper, but I hope you took him seriously about parking in a place where there are plenty of open spots, such as the far corner of the lot, if you insist on parking like that. And only if there will be many open spots all day, because if the lot fills up, and someone waiting for a space, any space, sees you parked like that…they likely won’t have sandpaper but they will definitely have some keys available, and if they’re running late, they’ll likely be upset.
Hey Doug-o, Here’s something constructive – Take in a hotrod/classic/whatever carshow ie; Goodguys Rod & Custom national event and take a look at some paint jobs that cost as much as some cars. Albiet, with your hands and your sandpaper neatly stowed in your pockets. Check out https://www.good-guys.com/ And don’t forget to double- park to protect the paint. :^)
It’s a f***ing Civic, not a Bentley, dude! Get over yourself!
Ah, but it’s a Civic “Si”, which makes the driver ghetto royalty.
I would use the chalk to mark where someone parks over the line in a prime spot marking a big arrow (pointing to their car) over the words IDIOT.
A friend and I found someone parked on the line at work one day. Since we were both driving Geo Metros, we parked on each side of him and were still within the respective parking spaces. He, however, could not get in his car. We stood there waiting to see his reaction. He complained to the Center Manager, who told him that if he had parked legally he would not be having problems, and all he (the manager) could do would be call a wrecker to tow his car to the impound lot. Idiot finally managed to crawl in through the sunroof.
i think the question here is where is this lot? at a store , work, or apartment complex. i know at my job we would simply tell the building manager and he would have them move the car. if it’s an apartment same thing. if it keeps happening then you do something about it.
I’ve seen $100,000 + cars parked like that… now that’s sickening. This person just loves his $25,000 Civic Si too much, and probably doesn’t have the money for the body shop if the car gets scratched.
As a Honda owner, I’m apalled! Most of us have more class than that.
Driver’s Ed Dropout
It’s not even that cool a car!
looks like the driver picked the furthest spot out so unless the lot was full I say let him do it who appointed you parking lot king?
Has anyone considered the possibility the photo was taken by the same person who parked the car, who parked that way intentionally in an (apparently) empty lot so they could write on the pavement in chalk to make a point?
Btw, with the large grassy areas here my guess is its a public park.
I ran across this on a crowded parking lot one day. Someone felt their badass “tuner” was too good for one parking spot. I managed to squeeze my 1989 Ranger about 1″ from their driver’s door on the adjacent spot.
You know, once I had to park between two other cars that were way off the lines, and so I just had to fit into the space they left. Hours later when I came back to my car, it looked like this … but it wasn’t my fault and I wasn’t the cause. So now, when I see something like this, I think … “maybe they were forced into this by the other cars hours ago”. Just saying you don’t always know the whole story.
That’s not possible in this case. If you look to the right, there is only half a space before you get to the curb and then the grass.
The problem isn’t people trying to protect their cars from dings – it is the inconsiderate buttheads who ding them. I just recently had a door ding repaired and the cost was over $200. Having no dings added approximately $500 to the resale value. If someone did $200 damage to our clothes or our house they’d be expected to pay for the damages, but try to get someone to pay for a door ding. We should be able to park within the lines and know that someone isn’t going to throw open their door and damage our property, but as long as those buttheads are out there, people with nice cars will try to find ways to protect them.
For all the asshole drivers/parkers in the world. :)
It doesn’t matter how much your car is worth, just that you want to keep it nice and most people are so inconsiderate and throw open their doors. I see it all the time!! I drive a new Cadillac now and want to keep it as nice as my Toyota Camry when I owned it. Some people care about their cars, and others don’t. Just park way out at the end of the parking lot and get some exercise and those that don’t care about their cars or are lazy, just keeping parking up close and ding each others doors and leave the rest of us alone!!!!!!
If you park “way out at the end of the parking lot” there’s no need to take up two spots. No-one is going to park right beside you there unless they do it intentionally and they could do that even if you double parked.
